president of the united states bill clinton in conversation with me and my colleague at cbs nora o'donnell. >> rose: do you think this election the president has said that change has to come from outside rather than in washington, that this election has the possibility of producing a change that will be able to overcome gridlock. >> i don't think it to the only has the possibility, i think it almost certainly will. and let me explain why. i think the president's going to win but let's assume governor romney won. if he wins, that almost certainly means the republicans will hold on to the house and it will be about 50/50 in the senate, more or less the way it is now. you can't filibuster a budget. it's the only thing that doesn't require 60 votes in the senate to pass o as opposed to 51. so a lot of the policymaking will be pushed into the budget and he'll just have to pick up one or two people on that. if you assume that he is going to do what he said he's going to do, i think a lot of his priorities will be enacted. and i think it will be bad on the budget side, as i said. includin
of the united states. all of these industries used water from this system. and it served as a prototype for many american cities, including pittsburgh and new york. man: new york city went to philadelphia and said, "you know, we're thinking of developing a hudson river water supply -- what do you suggest we do?" and they said, "we've had "a lot of problems on the schuylkill. "don't go to the hudson river. go to the upland and work by gravity." and that's what new york city did. they first went to the hudson highlands, but 150 years later, it went to the delaware highlands. and really diverted the water that normally went to philadelphia to new york city. i don't think they anticipated that. narrator: the majority of new york city's drinking water comes from watersheds in upstate new york. a watershed is the area of land where water from rain or snow melt drains downhill into a body of water. mountains act as a funnel to feed rivers and lakes. and in this case, reservoirs. in the new york city system, water is collected and stored in 19 reservoirs, which can hold more than a year's supply -- over

of the united states, the budget, on its current trajectory, will bankrupt the country if we do not do something. >> what is the worst that could happen? >> what almost happened last summer when the 80th, the republican idiots, and decided we can have the country defaults on its debt and that would be fine. if you have ever been a banking reporter, which i have, if there is anything resembling a default on u.s. debt, it is a disaster worldwide. i thought we had learned something from that a year ago. apparently, we have not. the worst thing that happens is a u.s. default on its debt. it would be catastrophic. for no reason, idiotic. it is crazy. >> what is the result? >> every bank in the united states, every major bank, is bankrupt. suddenly, your capital is gone. a lot of capital is tied up in government securities. >> what happens if i go to the bank and what my money? >> it might or may not still be there. it is not like the banks would close. they would not be able to land. -- lend. it was like four years ago where you were facing massive bank failures. you still get your money but you woul

corn says to the president of the united states, in the oval office is in his house, i am disappointed in this white house and you for not having a fallback plan. literally, again. somebody reading of the president in the oval office for not having a plan. after the meeting, harry reid said to his chief of staff, stood up to him, he needed to hear it. no one was telling him. think about it for a moment. what is the second most powerful democrat in washington have to use his chief of staff as a lever to send a message to the president of the united states? i was talking to somebody from amazon.com the other day. as you may know, they take books and they divide them as red states and blue states. most of the books selling in red states, republican state, blue state, democratic states, and i have said, where does this football? where is it to and he said well, it's purple. because it has information about both sides in all of us. it shows that there is a war going on, not just in the democratic party, but the republican perhaps much more intense. john boehner is trying to work a deal with
and writing with hatred toward us, toward the united states. when i see that and see the kind of effort he put on to put these people together and make them like us, boy do they hate us it's the exact opposite. i came up with the expression the unlucky president. he is unlucky for this country. not unlucky for himself. if you look at the campaigns and what he did he had a lot of luck on the side. he limped over the finish line. he is unlucky for the country. >> i don't know if it is luck as much as he reads a teleprompter pretty well and they never gave it any scrutiny. nobody closed this election. it's still wide open. that raises the question if you were sitting across not from me but mitt romney you had a mess samming to send mitt what would it be? >> i think they have to get tougher. i think their convention was not good. you thought the democrats did a good job. he was talking about how they picked up something with their convention they are talking about women and unmarried women and the married women. they are working hard the democrats and working hard on specific groups that the class
. the united states has supported the forces of change. we were inspired by the tunisian protests that toppled dictator because we recognize our own police in the aspirations of men and women who took to the streets. we insisted on change in egypt because our support for democracy ultimately put us on the side of the people. we supported a transition of leadership in a yemen because the interests of the people were no longer being served by a corrupt status quo. we intervened in libya alongside a broad coalition and with a mandate of united nations security council because we had the ability to start project to stop the slaughter of innocents -- we had the ability to stop the slaughter of innocents. as we meet here, we declared the regime must come to an end so the suffering of the syrian people can stop and a new dawn can begin. we have taken these positions because we believe that freedom and self-determination are not unique to one culture. these are not simply american values or western values. they are universal values. even as there will be huge challenges to come with a transition to de
basis. pretty much every day, i will look at scotus blog, supreme court of the united states. or there is a blog called "how appealing." there are a variety of blogs, written by law professors. some are more conservative and some are more liberal. i will look at those every once in awhile and see what people are saying and thinking and writing about legal issues. i find them interesting and occasionally useful. you know. it is the world i come from, as you know. i am not going to say, i am never going to read the law review article again. >> do you read them before, as you are trying to sort through cases? >> usually only when the briefs point them out. i rarely do an independent search. >> you talked about the role of clerks in sorting through the cert petitions. in recent years, the court has taken many fewer cases than it did in an earlier area. -- earlier era. maybe there are fewer circuits and fewer important issues, but that seems unlikely. do you have a sense of whether the court is taking the right number? >> the truth is, i do not know if it is unlikely, for this rea
want to introduce you to the united states attorney, who is melinda haig, who is going to say some words to you. thank you. [ applause ] >> wow. you guys really are happy to be out of school. so nice to see all of you, as richard said, good morning everyone. as richard said my name is melinda haigh, the united states attorney for the northern district of border to monterey and our office is just a couple of blocks away in san francisco. [ applause ] so we love it here. many of you probably don't know what the united states attorney is or what they do or anything like that, but i was nominated by president obama to be the united states attorney here two years ago. yes, my boss.

[ applause ] it's really amazing. really amazing. there are 2400 of your classmat
in the united states. [laughter] besides those two. it is a bizarre and unfortunate fact i think. but those are help interesting facts about the supreme court. but, frankly, i don't think they're very important. here's an important fact about the supreme court. there are five republicans and four democrats. i will speak for somewhat longer, but this is basically all you need to know. [laughter] if there's a take away here, i've gotten to the point early. there are five republicans and four democrats, and that really tells you much of what you need to know. and it is true that the justices wear robes because they're supposed to look all alike, and this was, you know, supposed to give the perception that they're all pretty much the same. but just as on the other side of first street, the united states congress is deeply divided, according to party, so was the united states supreme court. and this is a moment of real partisan division at the supreme court. and that is exemplified in case after case. why this moment is so important i think, you need to go back in history of the supreme court to
in the united states. what have we learned from japan and what are the limitations from the lessons we could learn from japan? >> japan was the first, of course, modern economy to be trapped at the zero bound -- that is have short-term interest rates close to 0%. in many ways their experience foreshadowed the global financial crisis of 2008. the japanese had a stock market boom and bust and a property boom and bust together which was roughly double the size proportionately speaking to what happened in the united states. so it was a major shock to their economy. they have responded to it through a variety of tools. i think a couple things that we learned from watching their experience and the troubles and difficulties they've been through, and two that i would point to that we have tried to learn from them. the first is, aggressiveness, early aggressiveness of monetary policy. what we learned from japan is we learned from the 1930s, that once you get into deflation, a deflationous situation where prices are dropping, prices and wages are dropping, it can be very, very hard to get out of that.
up with a budget deal. do you think the united states would go back into recession? the head of the international monetary fund paints a dark picture. wyatt andrews and anthony mason report on today's threats to the recover. for the first time we'll take you inside this secret u.s. facility. bob orr shows us where they track terror suspects worldwide. and jim axelrod with a young soccer player who's replaced a missing leg with gallantry on the field. >> i just want to be seen as an equal. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening, and we could add happy new year, because this is the first day of the federal government's new fiscal year. but there's not much to celebrate because the nation is headed toward what's being called the fiscal cliff and there are dire new warnings today about what will happen to american families unless congress and the president reach a budget deal by december 31. that is the day that a series of tax cuts will expire and big cuts in federal spend will take hold. tax experts said today 90% o

[applause] ladies and gentlemen, if i could present to you, rodrigo santos, the newest member of our board of trustees. [applause] >> i am honored for this great appointment. as a new member of the board of trustees, i can tell you i will do everything in my power to ensure not only do we follow the great work of former trustee milton marks. that great legacy of public service. but at the same time, i join an institution that must be saved, an institution that must be preserved.
in the united states. not just montana. they are competing with other emerging economies across the planet. we have to invest in our cells. -- in ourselves. i was astonished knowing the importance of a quality education when my opponent voted to slash grants and voted to increase the interest payments on student loans. that is how i went to school. that is how thousands of nevada at middle income families go to school. they depend on it. my opponent voted to slash. and he in -- he voted to double. as far as the department of education is concerned, at the lincoln county dinner, he very clearly said it is exactly what he would do, eliminate the department of education. it was picked up by "the times." >> thank you. >> that is not accurate but that is fine. i am not surprised she will continue with that. my opponent in 2010 voted against the loan program. it helped generations of americans get their education. she has to be careful with what she said. my wife is a schoolteacher. she taught school and works within school districts. she understands the importance of parents, teachers, and principl
received the news from hillary clinton during a visit to the united states. >> reporter: to attend the u.n. general semibly. secretary of state hillary clinton told him that the obama administration would begin easing its ban on imports from myanmar. >> in recognition of the continued progress toward reform and in response to requests from both the government and the opposition, united states is taking the next step in normalizing our commercial relationship. >> reporter: he expressed his gratitude and said the people of myanmar would be happy that economic restrictions are being eased. clinton made a point of reminding him the division of aung san suu kyi. she visited the u.s. earlier this month for the first time since her release from the house arrest in november 2010. she and clinton together gave a lecture in washington calling for more investment in education and health care in myanmar. obama administration is expected to seek congressional approval to ease sanction while also monitoring the progress of myanmar's democratic reforms. myanmar is home to 60 million people and rich in
. >> on wednesday night, mitt romney is going to be standing on the same stage as the president of the united states and i'm telling you, david, come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> we'll see if he's right. but what chris christie says is right as predicted if you're mitt romney. donors are nervous, and perhaps in christie's mind his assertion was an atelt to boost the morral of romney's supporters. the bottom line, if christie's aspirations do not come true, romney has bigger problems. people who pay no federal tacks and get government help, were, quote, inarticulate. >> we've had some missteps but at the end of the day, the choice is really clear and we're giving people a really clear choice. >> but when ryan was asked by fox's chris wallace whether the media is, quote, carrying water for barack obama, ryan took the bait and ryan wasn't the only one who thinks the media is preparing to game him a raw deal. >> i think it kind of goes without saying there is definitely a media bias. >> i think most media are left of center and therefore they want a left of
rest attack against the united states that took the life of our u.s. ambassador and three very distinguished embassy employees. americans deserve is truth. what happened. the reason that's so important isn't for the political fodder, but this is serious business. if you look at what happened in kenya and tunisa with the bombings, tanzania, excuse me, what happened with the 9/11 committee, they said what happened when nothing happened when there wasn't a response is al-qaeda made the interpretation it's okay to be more aggressive and then you had 9/11 that follows year. so this is important for two reasons. one, i think the americans have the right to know it was their ambassador that was killed. there was certainly misinformation flowing and i think political interpretation of intelligence is always a dangerous thing. i don't care who does it. last lastly, what are we doing to track these people down and send the signal we will not tolerate this? we risk another serious attack and that's my concern. >> and let me ask you this key request. is there any way you could be persuaded
on the same stage with the president of the united states and people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future. and wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> how do you restart a campaign, governor, at that last moment where you can reach tens of millions of people? why isn't it too late to believe that after you announce your running mate, after you have your own convention, that you can restart with the presidential debates? >> absolutely. you'll have tens of millions of people for the very first time, david, really tuning in and paying attention to this race. and also for the first time you're going to have them be able to make a direct side-by-side comparison. remember, at the end of the day, campaigns are about the candidates. and they're going to be able to see the two candidates next to each other, debating each other, and governor romney i know will do a great job on wednesday night laying out his vision for america's future and making the contrast between he an

of the united states? he's already giving all of us some major clues. let's bring in cnn's crime and justice correspondent joe johns who's taking a closer look. what are you seeing? >> the supreme court doesn't get talked about that much on the campaign trail. but choosing a justice is one of the most important things a president does. it's how on administration puts its mark on some of the nation east toughest, most divisive issues. and we have a look at how mitt romney might handle it if he's president. whenever mitt romney fielded questions during the primaries about his picks for the supreme court, he was armed with a stock republican answer. >> what i would look to do would be to appoint people to the supreme court that will follow strictly the constitution as opposed to to legislating from the bench. >> reporter: but he wouldn't choose a favorite. >> would you pick one, please? >> yes, roberts, thomas, alito and scalia. >> reporter: all that changed in june when roberts cast the deciding vote to uphold president obama's health care law. >> as you might imagine, i disagree with the supr

, that is when we had with the statement. this is a person who is top intelligence officer in the united states government. i have the statement right here. what i believe it does it attempts to give the administration some cover for their initial comments and then concludes what we saw in libya wasn't terrorism. there is a problem here. when you read the statement is what you see is the administration assessments of libya went way beyond what is in the document specifically the statements of susan rice that spun the story that was hijacked by extremists and then launched an assault. we're going to look back on the period and original reporting as really changing the dialogue publicly about this attack. we reported a day after the assault based on an interview with the head of the house intelligence committee in was premeditated commando style attack. then with my colleagues pamela brown, on the 17th after the ambassador wrote his comments, we reported there was no demonstration at consulate when the attack happened. then my colleague bret baier was the first to report that a guantanamo detaine
